I went to the allotment yesterday to check up on the flax and do some weeding. There were a few horses' tails/ mares' tails/ bastards (whatever you call them) but the main weed culprit was grass.
My flax is starting to peep through the earth! There were patches of little green leaves, little pairs of leaves, all over the place! They didn't seem to have been munched on, so fingers crossed the Fort Knox arrangements around the bed are helping. Here are my babies!
